Would you call Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 the saviour of Bollywood, now that it has clicked and given the Hindi film industry such respite?
– Calling the film a saviour would be a bit too much. And I’ll tell you why. It’s not as if Bollywood would have shut down had BHOOL BHULAIYAA 2 not done well. A section of the media may have had us believe that that would have happened, but as prudent trade people, we know, that was not going to happen. The film is a hit, no doubt, and kudos to the director, producers, writers, stars, actors and others who made the film possible.
How much bearing does a star’s personal life have on his/her professional life?
– In the good old days, personal lives of stars did not have much bearing on their careers or professional lives. That’s because the public used to get a peek into their personal lives through gossip magazines which were not sacrosanct. But today, with most stars being on social media, their personal lives are an open book. Hence, that does have a bearing on their professional lives too, to an extent, at least. Having said that, let me add that Indians are a very forgiving lot. Even if they let their opinion about a star (based on what he/she does in his/her personal life) cloud their judgement about him/her on the negative side, they would rush to watch his/her film if they hear good public reports about the film.
Will Neetu Singh Kapoor continue to act in films or is Jugjugg Jeeyo a one-off case?
– She will continue to accept acting offers that are worth her while.
